Weekend in pictures


This weekend was the first I'd spent at home for a while, so I made the most of being in Nottingham. On Saturday I wandered into Hockley where Broad Street had been covered in 'lawn' and made car-free for the day, allowing people to learn more about cycling and public transport. I also had chance to take a photo for my stranger project, of a friendly lady who was playing a hurdy-gurdy - an interesting medieval instrument I'd not seen before. Then I headed to Aubrey's Creperie - a nice little French-style pancake shop in the West End Arcade I'd wanted to visit for a while. My banana-nutella crepe was pretty great (although we seemed to be waiting for them for ages, my tummy was grumbling!)

On Saturday evening we invited some friend over for a cheese 'n' LP's evening. The cheese selection was amazing, and the LPs were pretty good too! Today the weather wasn't so good but I managed to start a new photo project (will reveal more soon) and I'm now in the middle of making some blue cheese & broccoli soup, using up some of the leftover cheese from last night. There's nothing better on a rainy Sunday than making soup and watching an old film. Hope you all had good weekends as well! x

  1. Mmm cheese. Also Aubery's looks nice - added to my 'to do' list...

  2. You've given me a massive craving for cheese and crackers.

  3. Any place called 'Aubrey's' has got to be worth a visit. :)

  4. Ooh another cafe in Nott I need to visit! :)
